able Foundation and Planned Furniture Promotions raised more than $440,000 for local charities through their 27th charity golf outing and dinner July 15.

The money benefits area charities helping children in need, including the Camp Rising Sun, Cardinal Cushing Centers, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Family & Children’s Aid, Prudence Crandall Center, the Jimmy Fund and Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters.

“This event is about the children in the communities we serve, and it’s a labor of love,” Bob Kaufman, co-founder of Manchester, Conn.-based Bob’s, said in a release. “We think it’s wonderful that for 27 straight years our employees, vendors and executive team have enthusiastically supported our commitment to these invaluable nonprofit organizations that help so many children in need.”

The charity golf outing was started by industry liquidator and sales promotion company PFP. Bob’s became an event partner when Kaufman and PFP co-founder Gene Rosenberg opened Bob’s in 1991.

“Over the years, I have been to many of the facilities that support Bob’s Kids. Seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces and the joy that it brings them makes this all worthwhile,” Rosenberg said.

This year 240 people took part in the opening round of golf at the Tunxis Plantation Country Club in Farmington, Conn. An evening gala that included dinner, awards and silent and live auctions at the nearby Farmington Club was attended by 420.

Bob’s Charitable Foundation donates more than $1.5 million a year in furniture, gift certificates and money annually to projects that support children in need.
